Cildo Meireles: A Tower That Could Reach the Heavens

2 March 2017

Get a fresh perspective on Cildo Mereiles in this short film about the artist and his work Babel, 2001 which is currently on display at Tate Modern in Media Networks. Babel explores an ancient myth about the origin of language. In this video Tariq from Tate Collective London (a free event for young people aged 15–25 to experiment, create and innovate through art and ideas at Tate Modern and Tate Britain) presents his perspective on this towering artwork. Tate Collective London is a part of Circuit, led by Tate and funded by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation. Babel was purchased by Tate with a generous grant from the Tate Americas Foundation, using funds raised by its Latin American Acquisitions Committee.
